Watford News and Form – Can Watford make it back to back wins?

Watford finally got their breakthrough win in what was the 12th game of the campaign. That left them on a W1 D5 L6 record for the season heading into the international break. They will return just three points from safety and now with something to target. It has only been one defeat for Watford in their last five games (D3 L1). So they have picked up more resilience since Quique Flores took back over.

Burnley 1-0 correct score


Watford are the lowest scoring side in the division by some way, however. The two sides beneath them, Southampton and Norwich, have both scored three goals more than what Watford have managed this season. In their home games played this season in the top flight, Watford have tallied up four goals. Even with that low output, two-thirds of games at Vicarage Road have gone over 2.5 goals.

The Hornets have yet to be winning at the half time break in any of their home games this season (D3 L3) and three of their four home goals have come in the second half of games. Watford have failed to land a win in any of their last 10 Premier League home games, so this slump goes back beyond this season. Now with their first win of the season under their belt, can they add to it?

Watford vs Burnley Predictions

Burnley to win: Watford’s long winless run at home suggests that they are worse off than Burnley, who can’t win away from home. The Hornets have struggled badly in front of goal. They are going to find Burnley a much tougher prospect to go up against than Norwich were. The Clarets may well get close to their first road success of the season. Away win.
